The Detectives: Series 5 Film Poster


All five episodes from the fifth series of the BBC comedy series expanded from occasional short sketches on Jasper Carrott's 'Canned Carrott' show. Jasper Carrot and Robert Powell star as bumbling duo Detective Constables Bob Louis and David Briggs, promoted well beyond their crime-fighting talents. In the never-ending high-tech war against crime they are the Scud missiles of the police arsenal: inefficient, unreliable and utterly aimless. Episodes are: 'Special Branch', 'Cardiac Arrest', 'The Beast of Hackney Marshes', 'The Curse of the Commanches', 'Best Man', 'Mine's a Large One' and 'Go West Old Man'.
